Lenoir-Rhyne University's Catherine Hauck (Lake Mary, Fla.) has been named a 2011 NCAA Division II Daktronics Women's Soccer First-Team All-American. Hauck garners first-team All-American accolades for the
second straight year.
Hauck, a senior defender, was recently named the 2011 South Atlantic Conference and Southeast Region Player Of The Year.
Hauck finished second on the team this season in goals scored (11) and points (26) and led Lenoir-Rhyne to a 17-3-1 record and a perfect 9-0 mark in league play.
The Bears also won their second straight South Atlantic Conference Regular Season Championship including their first outright crown and advanced to the NCAA Division II Sweet Sixteen this year.
In 2010, Hauck earned All-American accolades by both Daktronics (Third Team) and the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (First Team) and was the conference player of the year as well.
Hauck guided the 2010 L-R squad to a 19-2-2 record, both the conference regular season and tournament titles and a berth in the NCAA Division II National Quarterfinals. The squad also finished the season ranked No. 8 in the nation.
Hauck, a four-time All-South Atlantic Conference and all-region selection (2008-11), finished her collegiate career with 31 goals, eight assists and 70 points.
Sports information directors from NCAA Division II schools and conferences selected the three Daktronics All-America teams. The process begins at the regional level with all first-team all-region picks advancing to the national ballot. This is the sixth year Daktronics has sponsored the NCAA Division II Women's Soccer All-America and all-region teams. A total of 39 student-athletes representing 21 different institutions filled out the three teams.
The team is sponsored by Daktronics, Inc., an acknowledged world leader in scoring, timing and programmable display systems for virtually every sport at every level of competition. The team is voted on by the NCAA Division II members of the College Sports Information Directors of America (D2SIDA), with the online nomination and voting process powered by ATHLETICSITE.COM.
